Mark Oja was born in Sault Ste
Marie, Ontario Canada. After watching his late
father Alvin working in the garage, Mark became
obsessed with cars. By the age of 13, Mark had
painted his first car and never looked back. When
other kids had summer jobs, Mark was painting cars
in the family garage.
A licensed collision repair and refinisher, Marks
work has been featured in Hot Rod Magazine, Muscle
Car Power, and Street Rodder magazine.
After a 12 year stint at a GM dealership as Director
of Fixed Operations, Mark decided it was time to
move to Southern California and open a hot rod shop.
A friendship with the late Boyd Coddington led Mark
and his wife Pattie to Huntington Beach where Custom
Rod Garage was created.
Custom Rod garage is a clean, friendly, upscale
facility catering to the hot rod and custom car
enthusiast. From a simple repair to a ground up,
custom painted show car, Custom Rod Garage will
exceed your every expectation.
